WIEBE, Margaret Julianna
Passed away peacefully in her sleep on July 25, 2015 just after her 62nd birthday at the Cascade Hospice in Chilliwack after a brief struggle with cancer. Margaret was born on July 19, 1953 in Abbotsford, the daughter of Cornelius and Katherina Martens. Margaret was gentle and compassionate with a loving soul, always thinking of others before herself and taking time to help anyone who needed it. She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren, reading, singing and gardening. From 1977 to 1980 Margaret attended Pacific Bible School and travelled to England with a missionary group. She was married in 1985 and became a mother to 2 stepsons as well as another son and a daughter. She home-schooled her 2 younger children and helped to lead worship at various churches in Chilliwack. After the children moved out, Margaret and her husband took many trips together in their motorhome. Margaret also volunteered as a missionary with YWAM in Australia and worked in an orphanage in Africa. She was wise, soft-spoken, and kind hearted. She will be missed by many. Margaret is survived by her husband Denis Wiebe and her children Clayton (Michelle), Christopher (Larissa), Sara (James) and Justin (Maria); her brothers Jake, Cornelius, George, Peter & Bill Martens as well as her sisters Mary Adamson and Tina Apps; her grandchildren Keely, Brynn,
Max, JJ; mother-in-law Erna Wiebe and a large number of relatives and friends. There will be a Celebration of Life Saturday, August 1, 2015 1:00 pm at Yarrow Alliance Church.
